When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
A friend of mine happened to read this to me a while ago and I thought that maybe this might be appropriate for some today, since some of our fathers are not around any longer. Since I'm limited on space a "-" means a new stanza. When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see, if the sun should rise, and find your eyes, filled with tears for me.- I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today. While thinking of the many things, we didn't get to say.- I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time you think of me, I know you will miss me too.- But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand, and said my place was ready in heaven far above, and I would have to leave behind all those I dearly love.- But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye, for all my life I'd always thought I didn't want to die.- I had so much to live for, and so much yet to do, it seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.- I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.- If I could relive yesterday, I thought just for a while, I'd say goodbye and kiss you, and maybe see you smile.- But then I fully realized, that this could never be, for the emptiness and memories, would take the place for me.- And when I thought of worldly things, that I'd miss come tomorrow, I thought of you and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow.- But when I walked through Heaven's gates, I felt so much at home, When God looked down and smiled at me, from His great golden throne. He said "This is eternity and all I've promised you."- Today for the life on earth is past, but here it starts new, I promise no tomorrow but today will, always last and since each day's the same day, there's no longing for the past. But you have been so faithful, so trusting and true.- Though there were times you did some things, you knew you shouldn't do, But you have been forgiven, and now at last you're free.- So won't you take my hand, and share my life with me? So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I'm right there in your heart. I don't know who wrote this but "thank you" whoever you are. I'm no poet laureate and I'm sure I don't understand the whole concept but I do know what I like and I really like this. I wish I could have written it in stanza form but for some reason blog wouldn't let me. I hope this touches some other hearts and souls like it touched mine.
